  Summary  

At Ros's funeral, Harry proposes to Ruth, who turns him down. She produces evidence that former Home Secretary Blake worked with Nightingale and ordered the hotel bombing that killed Ros. Blake's resignation in response to the $4 million found in a Dewitt bank account in his name was a smokescreen, a distraction. Shattered by the news, Harry visits Blake in his Scottish home and poisons his drink with a substance that makes it appear the politician has had a heart attack: MI-5 avenges the death of one of its own. One month later, Lucas boards a freighter in Tangier to assassinate Somali terrorist Hussein Abib . Harry is so disturbed by the deaths of his colleagues that he visits the new Home Secretary, William Towers , and submits a letter of resignation. The Home Secretary will not immediately accept it, and wants to sit on it for a few days. Before Lucas is able to complete his mission, the ship is hijacked by soldiers working for Abib. Dimitri Levendes , an MI-5 agent posing as captain of the ship, discovers Abib has loaded the ship with explosives, with the apparent intent of sailing the ship into Plymouth, where a new aircraft-carrier is about to be launched. With the help of private contractor Beth Bailey , who has been masquerading as an Eastern European passenger, Lucas and Beth escape the ship. Dimitri kills Abib. Beth tells Harry that she recognized a South American who was among the Somali terrorists; because he worked with submersibles to smuggle drugs, it is likely that submersibles were on board the ship. That is confirmed when Dimitri reports that he heard two boats go overboard while he was held in a container. When he checked for the explosives that he had seen earlier, they were gone, presumably on the submersibles. MI-5 deduces that the submersibles, laden with explosives, are heading up the Thames toward the Houses of Parliament. Discovering that "Talwar" , Abib's contact, is in the UK, and a teenage girl, Lucas tries to force her to abort the mission by threatening to kill her parents. When the threat fails, Harry approves the launch of an EMP bomb underneath the Houses, which disables the subs electrical systems before they reach their target. Harry calls the Home Secretary, and instructs him to tear up the letter of resignation. In the end, Beth successfully applies to join the MI-5 team, while Lucas is paid an unexpected visit by Vaughn Edwards , a shadowy character from Lucas's past who is now partially disabled by a stroke; Vaughn leaves Lucas with a briefcase.
